He shares some easy fitness tips you can practice everyday to control your blood pressure. Ready?
Jivesh explains how you can control blood pressure with exercise, “People with blood pressure (low/high) issues can benefit from both types of training – cardio and strength training, just like any trainee without BP issues. A combination of strength training and cardiovascular/aerobic training is ideal.”
He makes a crucial point, “Important thing to note here is that there must be a steady build up to higher intensity levels. Do not hold your breath while performing the exercises. Pre training warm up; intermediate and post training stretching is also very important here.”
For your overall wellbeing he says, “Always listen to your body, stop your activity right away if you get severely out of breath or dizzy or if you experience chest pain or pressure.”
Besides hard core fitness training, Jivesh gives you other options you can try to control blood pressure. He suggests, “Yoga and Meditation can also prove very useful. A regular yoga routine helps control the mind and body to reduce stress and control hypertension. A simpler meditation practiced for ten minutes every day can also lower blood pressure.”
Take life with a pinch of salt and take out the pressure out of blood pressure.
